DOLL MUSCLE MUSIC VIDEO INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN
XYZ PRISM is currently in the pre-production stage of a new music video for Doll Muscle, a New Orleans’ based Dream Pop duo. We are going to be collaborating with a local 6th ward studio space, Fish Pot Studio.
Here is a spiel about DOLL MUSCLE;
We are DOLL MUSCLE, a New Orleans based synth-pop band. On Sept. 25th we will be filming our first music video for “Feel Yourself“, the opening track off our new LP, LOVERS (out Oct. 4th)....
A descriptive of our song:
“Feel Yourself‘s lyrical simplicity is lifted by a grand, yet tender soundscape. It forms a spell that encourages, calls you to bring forth the strength of love from within you. It calls you to step into your unique stance of power. The discovery is yours, the joy, the sweetness, the birthright – it’s all yours, now. This is the time we were born into, it is our gift and our duty. For those of us who hear the call, the choice is obvious. ”
-Joel Andres Collier
>Doll Muscle is comprised of composer, Bodhi Landa, and vocalist, Joel Andres Collier. We are so thrilled to be teaming up with filmmaker Zensuke Omi, of XYZ Prism. Our vision for this music video has brought us to Fish Pot Studios. We will be working with a white seamless wall that is essentially one-of-a-kind in New Orleans. Your support will be covering the cost for the studio rental.
